Tony Orlando Yellow Ribbon salute Veterans
Orlando told the Branson Tri-Lakes News that he felt it was time to move on. "The veterans show, I’ve done it for 20 years and I’d like the city to find a new, fresh face for it. People in higher places need to find a new way to bring in a younger generation of veterans and performers."
Tony started the Yellow Ribbon Salute to Veterans in 1993 and has done the performance every year since, becoming a major event during the town's Veteran Homecoming week. The final performance will be November 11 at the Welk Resort Theatre.
Also coming to an end after twenty years is Tony Orlando's Great American Christmas!, a month long series of performances that include holiday favorites and many of Tony's biggest hits. This year's run goes from November 5 to November 28.
